The CaviTAU® measurement unit

The intraoral ultrasound measurement unit contains an ultrasonic transmitter and an ultrasonic receiver e.g., “measurement unit”. The transmitter and receiver are in a fixed geometric position with each other so that they clearly define their role. In CaviTAU®, the measurement unit should ideally be in a coplanar position. In order to provide a clearly defined, fixed geometric position, the two parts of the measurement unit are connected. At least one arm is rotatable so that the two parts of the measurement unit form a gripper. The use of rigid components makes the measurement unit extraordinarily stable and virtually eliminates the possibility of the receiver suffering a mechanical malfunction. The coplanarity of the transmitter and receiver is an essential attribute of CaviTAU®’s design. When both parts of the measurement unit are in the optimal position, the gripper is slightly compressed to ensure acoustic conductivity between the measurement unit and the jawbone.
